We are in the middle of an empathy drought. Let's make it rain.
Ginger Gorman is a fearless and multi-award-winning social justice journalist, author, broadcaster and feminist. In the course of a media career, which has spanned more than two decades, she’s watched bodies burn at the crematorium, been strapped to a bondage wheel and recorded her own cancer treatment.
She’s interviewed everyone from eminent scientists and artists to hardened criminals and vicious Internet trolls. She has an innate ability to connect and communicate with some of the most interesting and marginalised people in our community. Ginger works hard to translate those untold stories into powerful and insightful journalism.
Ginger’s bestselling book, Troll Hunting, came out in 2019. Since then, she’s been in demand both nationally and globally as an expert on cyberhate and the real-life harm predator trolling can do.
Ginger is editor of the popular (168k readers) feminist blog “BroadAgenda” at the University of Canberra’s Faculty of Business, Government and Law.
She also hosts the podcast “Seriously Social” for the Academy of Social Sciences in Australia. She works with the non-profit Women in Media to fight for gender equity in her sector.
Ginger is currently writing a creative non-fiction book for Harper Collins called Flying not Falling about the internal worlds of older women and fighting invisibility.
Ginger worked in radio for 15 years - mostly at the ABC but also for Radio Netherlands Worldwide - and is an experienced event host and panel moderator. She’s a warm, compelling speaker.
She co-directs the training company Media Bootcamp, and trains everyone from CEOs to politicians, authors and rock stars (sorry, we can’t tell you who!).
